Ok a brief overview "about me". I lived the first half of my adult life for me. Spontaneity and thrills were at the heart of my motivations. I was always chasing a good time. In the process, I managed to tour the country with some of my favorite bands (and get paid for it), play poker with some of the world's elite (and get paid for it), and make thousands of memories that I will always cherish.
Somewhere along the way the good times became more fleeting than satisfying and I started thinking about some of the more profound questions in life. Ultimately, I decided that there was a void that I needed to address. i became convinced that the only life worth living is one that is in the service of others (that's an Einstein quote paraphrased I think). This new line of thinking landed me with a biology degree from UCLA and I recently have interviewed at various Physician Assistant programs (including Yale, Cornell and Baylor).
I am happy to report that I was accepted to a school in Pittsburgh called Chatham University. With some hard work and maybe a little luck I hope to practice medicine and work alongside a top oncologist.
The take home message is that I still love to have fun, but I want to make an impact on other peoples lives. I am lucky to have had the experiences that I have, it's time to give back.
My ultimate goal is to write a book about my life. I hope that doesn't sound pompous. I love to write and maybe I can help someone who feels lost, much the same way I felt for the majority of my twenties. Plus, I have some entertaining stories to offer.
Who I'm looking for? If I knew that, I'm almost positive that I would not find her. People seldom live up to expectations.
I just love interesting people. It's true that I will be moving to Pittsburgh this summer, but I am looking for a P.I.C. (partner in crime). I feel that bonds are made in the struggle and med school certainly will be just that. Maybe it is a pipe dream, but if I could find a girl to go through the struggle with me that will be my schooling, l think the bond formed could last a lifetime.
